I annotate my books like crazy in the margins. (Never could lose that university habbit.) So dead-tree editions for me all the way.

Kindle books allow you to do that as well. :)

I never found e-readers to be as friendly for marking while you read...

But the biggest bonus is when you do mark it's often much nicer as far as extras like search and other things go.

Something about the "flow" during reading though... ;)

Here is a question for all of you. If you can get the book in kindle format, would you or would you prefer the physical copy of the book? The reason I ask is that I was looking at getting "understanding exposure" but the kindle price was only $2 cheaper than the physical book. Thanks

The pictures would look better in print.

For this small price difference I would say get the hardcover all the way.

I use the ipad for a number of camera books and magazines; if I see something of interest, i screen shot it.

Understanding Exposure by bryan petersen

Needs to be the 3rd edition to be the most current information available.

Anything by Bryan Peterson is worthy of a read.

The Photographers Eye by Michael Freeman.
The language, terms, and concept are NOT for beginners.
It is changing my outlook on framing each shot, along with my own weekly practice.

This is a well written and thoughtfully compiled book. I bought it as a highly recommended book from one of the big photo bloggers. The author's thoughts and observations about imagery and the human brain are insightful. Basics of composition and the photographic process are well presented.
